Ninja Turtle gets a landing gear and a gopro gimbal.

So in talking to my friend Mark over at flitelab.com about this frame, he suggested I throw a cheap heli landing gear on it to give it minimal ground clearance and deal with the sliht alignment issue on some of these frames. He was right of course and it worked.

May

Thats a good question, and I have yet to get it working correctly. So in an effort to do so, this will serve as a possible recipie for someone else.

First off, I bought the AntennaTracking Kit for EagleEyes from Readymade RC. Read more about it!

Built it and mounted it, and added my EagleEyes FPV Station by EagleTree Read more about that!

I really liked the feel and response and even the sound of the Tiger Motors on RD27 - Ninja, so I bought the same motors to put on RD30 The Ninja Turtle.

Installing a TMF Back into Icarus (RD13)

May
12

 

The main standoffs are setup for KK/MK style 45 mm - 45 degree mounting, and RD33 was using an OpenPilot CC3D last so it has been adapted down to 30.5 mm and 0 degree offset . I tried putting an AGL Hobbies aka Rusty universal 45mm-30.5 adapter, but that seems like a waste of adapters.

 so I started over with only the universal adapter and went from 45mm 45 degree to 45mm 0 degree.

Reinstalling the TMF into RD10 aka Aqua

May

So my TMFs Came in from Flitelab.com, and I put one back into Aqua :)


 

I installed the board after redrilling one of the corner holes that seems a bit too small for some reason, and then secured it with a few nylon nuts.

Welcome RoboCam

May

After I built my Antenna Tracker, I decided to start getting the most out of it and taking advantage of it. RoboCam records my FPV flights of the Onboard FPV cam and OSD, and at the same time captures video/stills of myself and my aircraft while I fly!
